What kind of system do you use to heat the water in your home? Although most people use a water tank, there is another option: the tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters are generally considered more energy efficient and they definitely take up less space than a traditional water tank. However, they do have both pluses and minuses. So if you’re thinking about going tankless, here are some things to consider.
Some of the pros to switching to a tankless system include:
- Energy savings and operating costs
- Longer lifespan
- Takes up less space
Some of the cons to using a tankless water heater include:
- Limited capacity when it comes to hot water output on demand
- Typically more upfront cost for a tankless version
- Tankless water heaters can require much higher BTUs to heat your water than a traditional model.
